Take a peak inside my family’s historical house


My family’s historical house, the Havilah Babcock house, has a website.  The house was built by my great-great grandfather (the aforementioned Havilah), who was one of the co-founders of the Kimberly-Clark Corporation.

Havilah designed everything in the house, picking the furnishings, the wallpaper—and after he died, the family left it all the way it was.  So you can take a peak inside at what Havilah designed.

    • Yes. It’s never been out of the family. It went from my great-grandfather, to his two daughters, and then to my grandparents, and now my uncle.

    • All designed by my great-grandfather. He was a dry goods merchant and quite popular with the ladies because he knew his textiles.
